De­sign is in the De­tails

HI Weekly - - HI WEEKLY - SALIM AL AFIFI

Around the world, places of wor­ship are known for being mas­sive art-in­spired build­ings that sport in­ter­est­ing mo­tifs and tons of dec­o­ra­tive el­e­ments, but what set these mosques apart is the at­ten­tion to de­tails that is writ­ten all over them. From uber­cool Is­lamic, geo­met­ric, and con­tem­po­rary touches to the tini­est tile-work at ablu­tion ar­eas, these sa­cred havens are quin­tes­sen­tial ex­am­ple of what de­sign is all about.
